Virgin Money London Marathon

Organisers have confirmed that the 2022 TCS London Marathon will take place on Sunday 2 October. This will be the third successive year that the London Marathon will be held in October rather than its traditional April date.

Approx. 50,000 runners are expected to take part in what can only be described as a 42.2km London street party because it is so well supported by the locals. The London Marathon holds the Guinness World Record for charity fundraising at a single annual event worldwide and this can be seen on the day with runners in charity and/or fancy dress (optional). The atmosphere is amazing and to be a part of this special occasion is extremely memorable and a must for all runners to experience.
